Rambo: Last Blood has dropped a dramatic first trailer, proving that John Rambo still has it, all these years later.

The teaser starts off slowly, with him rocking back and forth on a rocking chair on his porch, then visiting a graveyard, and hanging out at the ranch by himself, before the action really kicks in.

Soon, arrows are flying, guns are out, explosions are everywhere - it looks like this is going to give the soldier of fortune a huge sendoff.

Sylvester Stallone is reprising his iconic role once again in this fifth and final film in the Rambo franchise.

As well as the trailer, the actor also posted a brand new poster on Instagram, with the caption: "THE FIRE IS LIT, BLOOD WILL FLOW, THE WARRIOR RISES..."

The film follows Rambo as he travels to Mexico after his friend's daughter is kidnapped, and he quickly finds himself up against one of Mexico's most violent cartels.

Yvette Monreal stars as the kidnap victim Gabrielle, while Paz Vega plays Carmen Delgado, a reporter covering the drug trade in Mexico who helps Rambo after her half-sister is kidnapped.

Life Itself's Sergio Peris-Mencheta will play Hugo Martinez, the brutal head of the previously-mentioned cartel, while Adriana Barraza (The Strain), Oscar Jaenada (Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides) and Joaquín Cosío (Narcos: Mexico) will all also star.

Rambo: Last Blood will be released in cinemas on September 20, 2019 in US and UK cinemas.
